Nipsey Hussle filmed the video for “Higher” just days before his untimely death. The record can be found on DJ Khaled’s new album, Father of Asahd.

John Legend lends his signature soulful sound on the hook of the track that almost creates a haunting feeling as he, Nipsey Hussle, and DJ Khaled roam the streets of Los Angeles in the video.

Earlier this week, DJ Khaled took to social media to commemorate Nipsey Hussle and announce that all proceeds from “Higher” will be donated to Nipsey Hussle’s children, Emani and Kross.

“The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a ‘Higher’ level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul,” Khaled wrote on social media. “It is in this spirit, of moving forward, of preserving his mission that I, my co-writers, producers and label partners are donating 100 percent of all our proceeds from ‘Higher’ to [Nipsey’s] children, Emani and Kross.”
